NHSCA

Several CWC wrestlers competed in the 2018 NHSCA Nationals last weekend. We did not come away with any "All-Americans" but we did have some great performances and some solid wins! The hard work is paying off!

CWC Update

CWC Parents,

 

A couple of notes:

 

-          The Pee-Wee practice on Tuesday 20 Feb 2018 will be run as an inter-squad “match” (same location and same time as always).  We think that the kids will really enjoy this and it will be a low-stress opportunity for the kids to get the feel for what a competition is like.  The kids may want to wear their singlets if they have one and would like to wear them.

o   The Advanced Practice on Tuesday will continue as normal.

 

-          A reminder that the CWC will be hosting a K-8 tournament on Sat 24 Feb (K-5th at 9am; 6-8th at 11am).  Please indicate HERE if you plan to attend.  See the prior message from Chris Wiles for further details.

 

-          There will be two changes in leadership for the CWC

 

o   I will be stepping down as the CWC President and Travis Paulson will be taking over this position.

o   Tommy Mello will be stepping down as the Scholastic Program Director and Rick Palmer will be taking over as the SPD.

§  Note that Rick is planning to be at practice on Tuesday night so I will be happy to introduce him to you all.

 

-          For those interested in having your child stay on the mat in the Spring we will be offering a Spring Session.  Details and registration are located HERE.

 

Regards,

 

Jimmy Burns

Announcing Charlottesville Regional K-8 Invitational Tournament Sat. 2/24

I am excited to announce that CWC is hosting a tournament this year for grades K-8 (pre-K may wrestle in the K-1 age group) on Sat. Feb. 24.  We will be holding it on 3 mats in the auxiliary gym and wrestling room at CHS (our normal dual meet location) and will be staggering the start times K-5 at 9am, 6-8 at 11am.  We will group kids by age, weight, and experience with the goal of creating 5-6 man round robin brackets, and will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals. 
Pre-registration is necessary by marking your intent on the normal spreadsheet:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UZil6HZm3H8Fg-FWRi25Spx4OHt-ca3kSibTP4-L7wc/edit?usp=sharing
We will be measuring weights at practice on Tue. (peewee) and Thurs. (all others) next week.
Cost will be $20 per wrestler to be paid on-site by 8am Sat. 2/24.
Please let me know any questions, and any offers for volunteer help are greatly appreciated (the proceeds will benefit our club).

Casino Night and Sunday Youth Match Before UVA-VT

CWC Parents,

 

A couple of notes:

 

-          Our annual “Casino Night” fundraiser will take place this Saturday, 10 Feb 2018 at the English Inn at 530pm (see attached flier).  This event is the primary fundraiser for the CWC Olympic Regional Training Center and the CWC Scholastic Program (that is you guys!!!).  This fundraiser helps enable your kids to be coached by former All-Americans (like Eddie Klimara who runs every Monday practice).  Let’s have a good showing of CWC Scholastic Program parents at the event this year.

o   Register for the event  HERE.

 

-          We will be hosting a Dual Match on Sunday at Memorial Gym (warms-ups at 830am; wrestling starts at 9am)

o   The match is before the UVa-VT Dual meet so we have a tight time window, thus will be setting match pairings beforehand.  In order to participate you must sign up here by 5pm on Thursday evening.

o   The CWC will be treating the wrestlers to pizza after the youth match (1130am), so…

 

-          Please stick around Memorial Gym after the youth match to watch UVa take on VT on Sunday.  The match will start at 1pm.

 

See you all this weekend.

 

Jimmy Burns
